Who's who at the conference 26th October

After tea/coffee our Saturday morning session continues with a paper from Prof. Elizabeth FitzPatrick, NUI Galway entitled 'Shifting Territorial Boundaries and Medieval Assembly Places'.

Using a case study of Óenach Locha Gile, the assembly place of Lough Gill, Co. Sligo, in the north west of Ireland, Prof. Fitzpatrick discusses how assembly places could become detached from the dynasties that habitually used them. The landscape archaeology and topographical lore of Óenach Locha Gile is identified and the ancestral attachment of the Uí Ruairc to this place is demonstrated as late as the sixteenth century.
